Law Stiffens Fines For Illegal Killing Of Deer

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed a law stiffening penalties for illegally killing or selling antlered white-tailed deer.

Individuals who violate the law now pay $1,000 in restitution for the value of the animal. A measure signed Tuesday raises restitution for illegally killing a "trophy buck" to at least $2,000 - and more depending on how many points the deer has.

The law also says those convicted of illegally killing a deer must wait longer to get a hunting license again.
